• NICE AND EASY: What's so good about DIRECTV SWM?

    A lot of people call our tech desk and ask why they would want a SWM upgrade. So, let's lay it out nice and easy... here are the advantages:

    • A SWM system only needs one wire per receiver.
    • Genie DVRs and clients only work with SWM systems.
    • All future DIRECTV products will be SWM-only.
    • SWM systems let you do whole-home viewing without ethernet cables.
    • The network design used in SWMs is much better for whole-home viewing.
    • A SWM system uses a separate power inserter and doesn't rely on power fro the receivers (like an older system.)
    • SWM systems can use splitters anywhere in the run, while older systems can't be split.
